An arrest for DWI is not limited only to people who are using alcohol, as drivers who are under the influence of illegal substances can also be arrested as well. The fines and penalties for such an arrest are the same as they are for other DWI offenses.
Nevada has what is known as an implied consent law, which means that by simply operating a vehicle on state highways, you are consenting to breathalyzer testing upon request. Refusing to comply with a lawful order can result in an officer using reasonable force to get you to comply.
There are stiff penalties associated with a DWI, including jail time, fines, and the loss of your driver’s license. To avoid serious complications, speak with a criminal defense attorney shortly after an arrest.
